Fuck me, the visuals in that arcade game are better than about 70% of retail games available at the moment. The lack of maps is a bit off putting, but the destructable environment coupled with the gameplay on offer make this seem like a likely purchase, however I can see it costing at least 1200 points.

It looks great. But there are only a few maps. I saw an interview saying that one map can last for a-g-e-s. Not sure how this works. Is it somthing akin to L4D's director? Or were they simply stating they are giving people the best maps so why add 5 sub standard ones that no one else would reall play anyway?  I am pretty sure it has been confirmed as 1,200 points so I am not sure about taking the plunge. I may just buy/rent Battlefield Bad Company as I did enjoy the demo of that.

Looking forward to a lot of XBLA games. I have about 4,600 points to spend and no money comming in for now! So I have to pick and chose. I was having trouble with the update for awhile and could not even download the demo of Sam & Max. Got the demo yesterday and it was ok. How is everyone finding it? Ign's review was not great. A 6.9? I still want to play it but maybe it will be worth renting it on the Wii instead? It is a 1,600 point game too so that was a bit of a shock. It was one of the games I was looking forward to but may just wait to see what the summer of arcade has to offer.

You can get Sam & Max: Season 1 on the PC for much less and you don't need a powerhouse to run it.

Shocking that is. Is that really real? I wouldn't have the heart to sell that to someone. I would feel too bad about ripping them off. I doubt any one of them read the sale properly. Why the hell would you buy the case? Or is there something I don't know?

Cheers for that. Though I don't really have my own PC at the moment. I will probaly just rent it on the Wii. I did want to support these point and click games. It would be nice to see them come back a bit. I'd say they are really suited to the Wii and DS but I am happy to play them on arcade too.

I will probaly buy that Monkey Island game that's comming out this year? Though I have decided to save my points for MvsC2, Turtles in Time and King of Fighters...12 is it? All the single player games can wait. I have enough single player Xbox 360 titles to get on with. Plus I have gone back to the PS2 to play Okami and a few other games.

Double Dragon and Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, have been removed from the service. It is not clear exactly when the removal occurred and no official announcement was made regarding the delisting. But if you look for the games on XBLA now, you will not find them.


http://uk.xboxlive.ign.com/articles/999/999140p1.html

What is worrying about this is there was no announcement or warning before hand. So if you deleted the game either game now to save hard drive space but thought you could always just download it again ... it would seem your luck is out.

Whilst I doubt this will happen to any of the bigger and more successful titles it is a bit shocking to have this happen. Or has the happend before? I have heard there was a free driving game that got removed but that was free so I'd say that was different.

Does anyone plan to give this a go? It's on XBLA and was released today for 400 points. I think it's located with the community games. Considering the price I may give it a go.

I've had a lot of fun with N+. One of the best XBLA games I have played. The graphics look simple but it's platforming in it's most pure form. Great fun and some challenging levels.  It has local co-op, vs multiplayer, level designer and a load of levels to get through. Worth it.

Has anyone bought the Fatal Fury or King of Fighters games? I got mixed up and thought the new KoF12 would be an XBLA game (I wish). I'll be getting KoF12 but not sure about the older games. I've never really got into them just wonder if fans think 800 points for them is worth it for either of them.

I tried the Kudo demo. It's a shame it's a timed demo as time does fly and there's not proper tutorial. It's simple enough. Apparently it was made with a younger auidence in mind but with enough depth in the programming possibilites to keep an adult interested. I'm terrible at programming and after playing I wish I could have tried somthing like this to be taught the under lining ideas. It's all visual and all the game creating is done with your xbox pad so anyone could get into it. The only thing holding me back is that I can not find any reviews but it's a decent price at 400 points.

1200.

That seems a really tame response next to Borstal's OP.

Better.

But no word on price yet. 

Speaking of price, apparently N+ is 400 points, not 560.

GET OUT AND WALK!!!  ARF ARF!!!

So has anyone downloaded BF1943 yet? The idea to have the last map unlockable after 43 million kills is a pretty neat idea, especially since it's an air dog fight level. I'm currently downloaing the demo but it looks a lot of fun.

What I can't believe is that someone actually gets paid to make the Inside XBox videos. The audio is horrible. If M$ are reading this, hire me!
